    Can somebody suggest some kind of spray we can use to clean the pollen off our electronics?
    After a few days of pollen at over 7000 ppm, I've noticed our electronics are packed with pollen.
    Using a brush just packs it into tight places.

    Thanks
    Tim

    Do you have an air compressor? If you don't, maybe those cans of compressed air will work. Or a paintbrush. Anything with any liquid is probably going to make it worse.

    I think pollen is somewhat sticky isn't it? I don't just mean from electrostatic forces either. If it's on smooth surfaces that you can get to, then pick it off with Scotch tape or PVC Electrician's tape. Otherwise compressed air is the next best hope.
